What Our Clients & Referrals are Saying:




Non Invasive Ventilation, Canton, OH

"I’ve had nothing but great service with Miller’s Rental & Sales. I am so happy that my pulmonary doctor referred me to Millers because I stand by them 100% and know they have my best interest in mind! "

Respironics Trilogy, Canton, OH

"My Trilogy is working great, and I do not know where I would be without this machine. I haven’t been in the hospital since last year for my breathing and would not be able to make it without this machine. Every night, my 12 year old daughter gets me my blanket, pillow, oxygen and my mask to make sure I place my machine on every night. She then comes out of her room 10 minutes later to make sure I am still wearing my machine. That’s how I know how important it is to wear this device, not only for me but my family as well."

Respironics Trilogy Non Invasive Ventilation in Canton, OH

"Recently my 88 yr old father had to begin using a BiPap machine because of retention of Carbon Dioxide. Debbie worked diligently with him and the staff in rehab at the hospital and followed his therapy when he moved to Assisted Living. She again worked with the staff there to be sure everyone was educated about the device. She was so kind to him and our family. She keeps me updated on his condition and I know I can call her anytime with questions. I am a registered nurse and I wish everyone in the medical field was as competent and caring as Debbie! Your company is very fortunate to have her as an employee."
